Will contact lenses be suitable for me?

Contact lenses are a great addition to your eye look. With advances in contact lens technology, materials and design, more patients than ever can wear contact lenses.

Lenses to correct even the highest prescriptions, including short-sightedness, long-sightedness, astigmatism and varifocal lenses are available.

Age is no longer a barrier.

There are even lenses designed for dry eyes. So no one should think “ Lenses are not for me”

You can wear them on a daily basis, part time, for sports or just for those special occasions.

Here at CATS we have a specialist interest in contact lenses. We will advise you on the best type of lens for you and your lifestyle, after carrying out a thorough eye examination, discussing your requirements and taking measurements to select the correct fitting lens.

Once a contact lens has been fitted and you are comfortable with it you will be taught:

  • How to put the lenses in and remove them
  • How to care for them
  • General do’s and don’ts
  • You will be able to trial the lenses at home
